Quickly - cannot find any option to change the original secuirty question (e.g. mothers maiden name/street you grew up on or whatever) - where is it?????????



Long version - wife has had a hotmail account for many many years. Was hotmail now outlook.com.


It has been hacked in the past. Have beefed up password.  Latest was today.


many emails sent out to people in contacts list.  Unclear if todays was just spoofing, or a true access to the account (nothing in sent box)


Have changed password once more, and now want to change the security question.


Have tried all kinds of searches and cannot find out if you can even change it.


Lots of old posts refer to the old hotmail set up - which no longer exists.


Any help appreicated

[besides the obvious open a gmail account, she wont go for that ;)]
